Subject: Recording from the Harlem Renaissance
Leroy Tibbs was the pianist and his band was the house band at Connie's Inn when in March of 1928 George Gershwin took fellow composers Maurice Ravel and Alexander Tansman on a tour of Harlem nightclubs and Connie's Inn was one of their stops. This recording was made just prior to their visit. Gerwshwin and Ravel both loved jazz and Connie's Inn along with the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom were the best. The band sounds great. The recording has great musical and historical value.
